Some citizens choose to camp out with their families on the outskirts of British Columbia, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and enjoy the wild nature.
Some citizens even said that although British Columbia has entered the third stage of restarting and many epidemic prevention measures have been relaxed, they still feel that it is safer and more secure to gather with friends outdoors.
Richmond citizen Ms. Zhang, with her 13-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son, drove to the inland Sasquatch Park camping together.
She said that on Canada's National Day in previous years, she almost always took her children to Steveston, Richmond to participate in the National Day parade until the event was cancelled after the epidemic last year.
Although the epidemic has eased, these traditional large-scale celebrations have not resumed, so she decided to take the children to spend the day in a different way.
This is the first camping trip for Ms. Zhang and the children. She has started preparations months in advance, including buying some camping equipment from overseas, and busy preparing food in recent days.
"The whole family is so excited." She said: "The children can't wait to prop up the tent at home and get in to sleep a few days ago." She also bought an inflatable boat, water sports clothes and shoes for the children. , I hope the family can spend a brand new Canada National Day.
Ms. Zhang said that due to the epidemic, she and the children have not come out for a long time. “The desire that has been suppressed for a long time can finally be released.” She said that although some other activities have also been opened, she is still worried that there will be too many people and not enough.

Ms. Huang, a citizen of West Vancouver, also met with her family of friends and camped together to spend Canada Day.

At least one shot of the vaccine has been given, which is also a kind of protection for young children who cannot be vaccinated at home.
She said that the school is closed and the children have not been out for a long time.

It can be said to be the most suitable summer family. Active.
Maybe many people have the same ideas as them. Ms. Huang took a lot of thought when booking the camp, and finally booked the last seat in this camp.
